Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral often used in building and construction materials. Renovation and deconstruction of asbestos is strictly regulated as it causes serious and fatal diseases.
If you have suspected asbestos in a building, hire a certifed contractor to ensure personal safety, for regulatory compliance, real estate disclosures, and long term liability for exposing others due to it being an airborne hazard.
Asbestos is not accepted by the Alameda County HHW Facilities.
A landfill must be authorized to accept asbestos wastes by its Regional Water Quality Control Board. Before you take asbestos to a landfill, call it to determine whether you need an appointment or whether they have any special requirements.
